Data issues

Time to show some major data issues graphically.

No figures at this point as they were unclear and anyway, the shapes are what matter. FYI, total emissions are c.8 Gt per annum; gridded temp. intervals are 0.5ºC; CO2 level rise is c.3 Gt p.a.

CET - the oldest continual temp record - shows at the start, the Little Ice Age, followed by recoveries even more dramatic than anything the last century has seen. And though the temperature rises at the end, it probably has not had sufficient (if any) deduction for local urban heat island effects - which might well make it show no overall trend at all.

Emissions - WHAT CORRELATION??

 

Problems of global temperature anomalies

NASA (left) use a baseline 1961-1980?

NASA (right) change their records too

 

Stations (left) unevenly distributed - to say nothing of urban heat island non-corrections.

Strange anomalies (right) suggest tha station distribution (and other factors) poses problems./

NASA is unreliable.
